not come into our homes in the way the modern president does. it happened to ronald reagan, it happened to bill clinton, george bush. and that is, obama fatigues. three years from now, people will be writing columns about obama fatigue, just as they did about clinton fatigue and bush fatigue and reagan fatigue. franklin roosevelt only gave 30 fireside chats in 12 years. he understood instinctively the dangers of overexposure. he also controlled the media to an extent that modern presidents could not hope to. host: looking back, fdr broke the unwritten code of serving more than two terms. he was elected to four terms. in today's modern age, could we have more than two terms for any president? guest: great question. >> you worked for ronald reagan. if his health was better, of course, would he have run for a third term? guest: i doubt it. he talked about it after he left office. he was going to campaign for appeal of that amendment. he thought the american people should be able to vote for anyone wanted to vote for. it is very difficult to imagine after eight years of office -- we've used
, you can come back to ronald reagan, and lo and behold, no surprise, there is a rejection of the jimmy carter years, with a very formal, gold tickets to inaugural balls, and clearly it is an inaugural ball. the program that seems sort of informal for his, becomes pinched very formal -- becomes very formal just a few years later. this says something about those administrations and what they are trying to conceive and produce during those events, and it also says something about all of us as well -- something about the nation, its feelings, what it was looking for because they are certainly trying to play off of that as well. part of the material that we collect is just about the enthusiasm. now, inaugurations are meant to be days of national celebration and national unity. they are not, obviously, always that way, so these kind of souvenirs that people might create, just as in the days of george washington -- you know, here are these brass buttons, these little penance that people could buy from the vendors on the street and take home. i particularly like this. this is a little glass tr

on the east side of the capital. and then four years later, when ronald reagan was inaugurated on the west front. sometimes he is credited for making that change, but that change was in the world for quite awhile. it would have been on the west front with carter, later, had ts turn that different. the view on the east front, compared to the west front was not very good. the east front used to be a parking lot, and then you have homes. parking lot, streets, kind of like a little town. whereas, here on the west side, you can accommodate these immense crowds. and they can see something. >> of course, president obama's first inaugural was attended by over a million people, i believe, gathering on the mall. the expectations is it will be somewhere about half that tomorrow. that is typical of second inauguration's. they are not as well -- publicly attended as the first. i think it is because the country is not as excited, they know who you are, they have seen you. my friend, who was also a chief speech writer for bill clinton -- i read something that he had written recently -- and let us begin,
of jimmy carter. on the east front of the capitol and i was here four years later when ronald reagan was inaugurated on the west front. it would have been carter'sen second inauguration if the election came out differently. but the viewing situation was not very good. the east front of the capitol used to be a parking lot. where as at the west front you can accommodate the immense crowds and they can see something. guest: i might add that president obama's first inaugural was attended by over one million people and the expectations will be half of that. i think that is typical of second inaugurations. they are not as well -- publicly attended as the first. i think it is because, you know, the country is not as excited. they know who you are. they have seen you a friend of mine was a writer for bill clinton i read something he said recently to say let us begin is more inspiring than let us continuing. i think that is a true point. host: let's go back to january 2005 as george w. bush was sworn into a second term. >> on this day prescribe bid law and marked by ceremony, we celebrate th
, almost to the day, when ronald reagan made a statement in his inaugural address that the solution to the government -- the government is not the solution to our problems, government is the problem. if you believe that, do not the president, for heaven's sake. you had a president who was inveighing against government. presidents of both parties have basically continued this policy. we have no active programs to solve any of these problems. we know what the solutions are -- we're not going to pay for any of them. i'm telling you, sadly, it is getting worse. no matter what the agreement is in two months. we are squeezing -- the rich have gotten their way. the corporate sector has gotten their way. they do not pay. there is no money for this preschool. all the sectors alone and -- own and operate the congress, so we have overpriced systems, exactly what you say, schools that do not work. we have the least social mobility of any high-income country in the world now. we havewe have kids locked into poverty like no other high- income countries in the whole world. because you cannot get o
was held on the west front of the capitol because since ronald reagan was president because he was a man of the west he wanted to face to the west as president. and he picked that side. now the problem with this is that the joint committee on the inauguration picked that site in june of 1980 and ronald reagan was nominated by his party until july 1980. the platform was under construction by the time the election was held in november. if jimmy carter had been re- elected he would have been sworn in on the west front. ronald reagan was smart enough to realize that he could take possession of this even though he did not order of this or choose this, he put it into his inaugural address. i am the first president to be looking west. i am looking out towards the pacific. he took ownership of that move from the east front to the west front even though he was not the person to choose it. this is an important lesson. ever since george washington came to the capitol, congress has run the inaugurations. that part has been done by the congress. they start a year in advance, long before they know who
tradition of going to st. john's right before their inauguration. harry truman, ronald reagan and both president bush's went to st. john's on the actual morning of the inauguration. we watch president barack obama carry on that tradition. bill: remarkable when you are here in washington and you see the white house for the location where we are, lafayette church, st. john's church is on the north end of lafayette park. if you were to walk as a civilian, might be 300 yards total. martha: not today. bill: in this case with the president and first family and amount of security in washington, d.c. as we see the vice president now get inside of his limousine as well, there are no chances taken here. climbing into cadillac 1, coming back to the white house before the procession begins up pennsylvania avenue toward the capitol building. that church is such a beautiful part of our nation's capitol. if you have been here you have seen it and you have seen the history inside of it and how intimate it is as a house of worship. martha: the presidents sit in the pew 54 in st. john's which is reserve
for something, president roosevelt, ronald reagan in 1981 in his first inaugural, they were unafraid. they said a number of things that not every american would agree with and as a result people had a clear sense of who they were and where they wanted to lead us. >> how much work goes into this speech? >> i think this is a speech that's clearly unlike any other, and it may well be that president obama or other presidents go into it with a very clear understanding of what they want to do, but rarely will every line be scrutinized in a way that an inaugural address will be. >> you had some favorites and you mentioned roosevelt as one of them. let's take a listen. >> nameless unreasoning, unjustified terror which parolizes needed efforts to convert retreats. >> you mentioned how important the lines are. jfk had a line. ask not what your country can do for you. ask what you can do for your country. what might be the line or the idea or the context of the line in obama's speech president obama's speech. >> maybe i'll talk about the context. if i had the laptop an
americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. >> ronald reagan gave the first inaugural address from the west front of the capitol. in doing so issued a manifesto of the area's conservative tide. >> in this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem. >> but the most recent inaugural address was that given by barack obama. >> this is the price and the promise of citizen ship. this is the source of our confidence, the knowledge that god calls on us to shape and uncertain destiny. this is the meaning of our liberty and our creed, why men and women and children of every race and every faith can join in celebration across this magnificent mall, and why a man whose father who less than 60 years ago might not have been served in a local restaurant can now stand before you to take a most sacred oath. >> wow. at its best, inaugural justice for a presidency, what a lead sentence does for a book. it captures the duration of what's to come. a great presidency often begins with a great statement. in the day that m
still a republican? i grew up under ronald reagan, and george schultz, and george herbert walker bush, and that's the republican party i knew. i think we've drifted from that. there's nothing wrong starting to drift a little bit back. not because it's good to be moderate. but that's where the american people are. they lost an election. two. >> five out of the last six. and the president will try to, you know, tie everyone together today. one speech can't do that. but what does he need to do, in your view? >> in the speech, i think he needs to appeal to our better angels. raise -- don't just tell me about the policy statements. save that for the state of the union. inspire america today. and i hope that's what he will try to do. but he needs to get to work. and the number one problem is the economy. he's got to fix the economy. the fiscal situation has been fixed, to a large extent. the stock market's doubled. that's pretty good. but he has to get everybody working again. it means fix the economy. it means fix the education. so we're bringing kids along that have the skills for 21st ce
a likability factor here that rivals ronald reagan, right? and it's very similar to that. but more people disapprove of his policies than approve of them. and so when you look at that, he's mindful of that a little bit. he's got a power to persuade when you have those kind of likability numbers. but at the same time, the public is sort of screaming at all of washington to do what savannah was talking about. and when we asked him wa kihat of message you want to send, he said fix this economy, create jobs and is for gosh sakes, compromise. i'm told in this anaugural address, he's going to be pragmatic of hope and is change rather than the full scale high level expectations you had four years ago, brian. >> and, chuck, these are speeches for the ages, the long view. but how much of current events do you think will be in it? we were speculating last night about two things in particular, number one, gun violence and the need, as the president sees it, to attack that as an issue quickly and, number two, we're going to be introducing doris kearns goodwin later on. what is the chance he doesn't q

[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> mrs. obama making her way to the rest of her family, her daughters and her mother. the president will be seated next to them shortly. next, we should be hearing the announcer present the vice president of the united states. norah, as we watch the vice president making his way to the west front of the capitol, let's switch to you for a moment. >> that's right. and you know, the vice president last night was at an inaugural reception, and he was singing the praises of his boss, barack obama, and saying he's just getting started, he's just getting started. and he promised supporters at this reception last night that in the weeks and months ahead, that they would reduce gun violence in america, that they would pass comprehensive immigration reform, and he said, "we're going to put this nation's econom

but steven spielberg, tommy lee jones. as tip o'neill famously said about his political foe, ronald reagan, love the sinner. hate the sin. when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neill over to the white house for drinks and raise a glass to one another. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration 2013. here is hoping it spills over to the next four years and both sides of the aisle make a move to be more social and more civil. and, hence, more productive. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us.

saw... i think this was the most ideologically assertive inaugural address since ronald reagan's first speech, this being the unreagan. >> brown: was it in overt language or symbols or we were talking earlier today as we were talking about the code... >> there was a coded language. talking about takers, we're not a nation of takers and so forth making reference to the sword and those kinds of things. he knows references that he knows people will understand and that codes people will get. so it was really about ideas. one of the things that i mentioned before about him not mentioning names, it was about ideals and ideas. so he was there, i think, summoning the will that beverly talked about. saying we are here together. this is your country. we are citizens. let's make it happen. it is very ideolodge igal. this is barack obama saying who he actually is >> brown: and what is that? i mean, what came through that connects, you're talking about the connection to roosevelt and other presidents in the past. what's the vision that you felt came through? >> i think often in inaugural addresses

basically is declaring the end of reaganism in this speech. remember, he once said that ronald reagan was historically consequential in a way that bill clinton was not. and what obama meant is that obama had changed the ideological course of the country. in 1981 in his inaugural address within two minutes, reagan had declared that government is not the solution, government is the problem. today's inaugural address was a rebuke to that entire idea. this speech today was an ode to big government. it was a hymn to big government. in his refrain, the three "we the people"'s, number one i'm going to defend what liberalism acheered, medicare, social security, medicaid. i'm not going to let any of that be chipped away and secondly, he said the vision for the future, climate change and green energy, the new expansion of liberalism in the new century and then the third element was his expansion of civil rights, where he talked about immigrants and gays and shoe-horned to gun rights under the rubric of security. he outlined the liberal agenda, the big government agenda in the future. and brit t
, a tradition that dates back to ronald reagan. the nomination of john kerry officially to serve as secretary of state. his confirmation hearing will take place this thursday. we're told a vote will take place next tuesday. he will be sworn in as secretary of state next wednesday. chuck hagel to head up the funds and j-- head up defense and jack lew as secretary of state. >> i think chuck this is the steepest climb to his nomination. even before it was officially announced, a lot of members on both sides coming out. there were so many republican members, and he is a former senator republican member from nebraska. even members of his own party coming out in opposition. i think he will face a tough time. jack lew i think will also be of the cross hairs. he was sort of the president's point man when it came to the fiscal issues on capitol hill. we have seen through the spending fights that jack lew was the guy to rankle the different positions and bring everyone to some type of agreement and avert disaster. what is funny is the same goodwill he was able to build up through a lot of the past spen
solar panels on the white house, that ronald reagan later tore down. but jimmy carter's vision of government is getting a little bit more of a second chance, i think, with obama's second speech. >> reaffirmed, perhaps, even. >> luke, you've covered the hill. what was the hill's response, yesterday, to the president's speech, to the events of -- >> before president obama had even left the luncheon, there was a statement out from cathy mcmorris rodgers, number 4 in the house gop conference who basically said, okay, there's a lot of nice words in this speech, but we would like to see some literal action. and the literal action is persuading the senate to pass a budget so we can move forward on fiscal issues. so i think you'll see some folks on the republican side, say, it was a beautiful moment for their country. obviously, they'll understand the significance of having an african-american president sworn in for a second time. but today, there was a press conference at 5:00 p.m., which is the first time we heard from house speaker john boehner since december 21st. i'm sure that the
of the capitol, facing west, which, of course, people from california love the symbolism of was ronald reagan, former governor of california. beforehand, i can't believe it, all of the inaugurals were on the east side of the the capito. john, jennifer, you know it well. there's not that much room there. you can never get a million people on that side of the the capitol. i remember that moment. the other thing i just love is today, barack obama will become the first president to take the oath of office for the fourth time since franklin roosevelt. >> jennifer: amazing. >> john: very true. that's a piece of trivia that won't be matched any time soon. >> jennifer: while we're watching the inaugustral procession, the first president to actually ride in a bulletproof car was lyndon johnson in 1965, michael shure. the first president to ride in a car at all, excuse me, david shuster, are you there? the first president to ride in a ceremony in a car was warren harding back in 1921. so shuster, can you see from where you are. you've got a unique spot looking back at the capitol. can you see any of th
